I can't believe it's that's cheap. Figures. I'm going to have to have a talk with my butcher and find out why bellies have gone up so much.
So we know where the party is going to be then.

I used to buy them all the time when I live out west and in Texas. I guess us Easterners are just too sophisticated for them. I have never seen them anywhere in the Boston market. If I ever do, I will definitely stock up.

Come to think of it, I haven't seen those boxes of bacon ends and pieces in a long time. Used to get them all the time. I will sure grab a couple of boxes if I see them in the grocery store again.

We don't have them in my area either.

When I was a kid I would buy those bacon ends and pieces, a sack of potatoes, a dozen eggs and a loaf of white supermarket bread to get me through the week until payday.

A real bad week was a sack of potatoes and 5 turkey pot pies for a dollar!

That is too bad, the ends and pieces are so wonderful. Some of the pieces are all meat. Almost like a bacon cured ham steak...nom, nom, nom.

And all the bacon crunchies, I eat them like candy...no wonder I have a heart problem. Some chunks are big enough to use for bean and ham soup. The boxes are usually about $2 a pound!

Pac,

I saw this and immediately thought of you.

Time to try your hand at baking!

You could probably start out with a ball of dough from the store, we won't tell.

bacon, recipe

Makin' Bacon! My first attempt at making my own bacon :pig: I will start this week long process by showing the pics from last night. The pork belly. [ATTACH]17816[/ATTACH] [ATTACH]17818[/ATTACH] The rub, or cure. Sugar- 1/2c + 3TB Kosher salt- 2TB + 2tsp Pepper- 1/2tsp Pink curing salt- 1-1/2tsp [ATTACH]17817[/ATTACH] Placed in a lasagna pan and rubbed all over. [ATTACH]17819[/ATTACH] And then placed into a ziploc bag and back into the pan. This will now be cured for seven days in the refrigerator. During this time it is supposed to prodice liquids which will be "massaged" back into the belly so the cure stays evenly distributed. [ATTACH]17820[/ATTACH] To be continued... 3 stars 1 reviews
